Editor:

We want to report the success of the 2014 Great Strides Walk to Cure Cystic Fibrosis (CF). With our awesome business community, families and friends, we were able to

raise over $24,000!

There are over a dozen CF families in our area that come together for this annual event- The great medical care CF patients receive at the CF Care Centers in Albuquerque,

Denver and across the United States. is directly related to our fund raising efforts. There are many daily medications they take to aide in airway clearance, anti-inflammation, anti-infection and better nutrition. We hear of new, exciting medicines and therapies that are progressing through clinical trial studies every day, including a gene corrector that our family members will hopefully be able to benefit from within the next decade. That research could not happen without the generosity of our community. Please check out the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website at www.cff.org.

Thank you again Four Corners! We look forward to next year's walk!
